How to Identify Apple MacBook Application Network Traffic?

Recently Apple release iOS 8 for the iPhone/iPad/iPod family of devices.

As a business we supervise our devices using a MacBook.

During this process Apple Configurator will automatically download and install the latest release of iOS software.

We currently have an application that is critical to our business and does not work with iOS 7.

I need to identify what traffic, ports, domains, ip's etc I need to block to prevent Apple Configurator from updating the iPods to the latest version.

What tools or commands can I use to get a list of network traffic eminating purely from a single process on an Apple Mac?

Once a device is supervised, you can set Update iOS to "Never update device".  I just added another profile to an iPad 2 and it only added the profile.

An iOS update is forced when supervising a device, but once supervised, it doesn't need to be forced with each refresh. After they are supervised, they will stay on the version of iOS installed as long as the option in Configurator is not set to "when update is available".  That option is only selectable once the device has been supervised.

Thank you.

I was already aware of this option.

I however need to supervise a device without it updating to the latest iOS as this is not compatible with out app.

I now have a work around.

I am able to use custom versions to specify the software version to use.

Custom versions has solved my problem, but it is also good to know how to block over the air updates.
